Feminism and Women with Disabilities - Resources

This is a list of resources I’ve put together on feminism and women with disabilities. The list is about a year or so old, and new books have come out since, plus I’ve run across others that should be on the list. So it’s not comprehensive by any means, but a start, at least, for anyone interested in issues relating to women and disability. Any suggestions on what else should be on the list are welcome.
